Moreover, I agree that, on paper, once again you all look like the favorites to win the SE, and maybe the East/President's. I do honestly think that it's going to be closer than many of you expect, with the Lightning having a solid chance to win the division, but that's natural from being a Lightning fan.
Plus, let's face it, you guys have some studs on your team that I really like. Not a huge fan of your big guys (Ovi, Semin, Green, Backstrom), but Alzner and Carlson are really great players that will be top pairing blue liners for awhile (assuming you re-sign Alzner
). Anyway, we'll settle this on the ice next season. Happy hunting!
I'm interested to see if Ashton makes the team and how plays. No doubt Washington and Tamp Rivalry has picked up in the last 10 years. I will say the SE is going to competitive and as usual be underrated by most fans in the NHL and media.
